HDR, AEB, and Me


Get ready to learn some abbreviations, cause I’m going to let you in on a secret. I use AEB to get those nice, colorful HDR images. AEB stands for Automatic Exposure Bracketing, and HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. My camera, and I’m sure most digital SLR cameras as well, has a setting called AEB which helps me capture beautiful HDR images.

It works like this: I set my camera settings to suit the scene and then turn on AEB. My camera will then take a picture at my original setting, then take one two stops under (or however many stops I set it to), then one stop under, then one stop over, and finally two stops over. It will take a total of 5 pictures (you can set it to take more or less) and look something like the below images.

Two stops under:

One stop under:
